The "S" theme isn't overly clear to me either, but my larger issue is with the blatant pandering, and use of others' intellectual property. As a general rule, I'm just not a fan of the pop-culture reference shirts at all. There are exceptions, of course, in which the artist presents the familiar in a new, different, or quirky way, (Radishes, Batrobin, etc.) but to me, this shirt does none of those things. It's simply taken popular, established images and slapped smiley faces and arms & legs on them.
I find it deeply disappointing that this is presently in the fog, collecting votes not necessarily because of it's artistry, but because of the "omfgi<3lotr factor", while other more original and creative designs stand no chance at printing.
